Hot Wheels Rev Up For Action in 2006
Miscellaneous: Jay Cochran - 2006.02.19

Click on image to see gallery


Hot Wheels® continues to lead the die-cast vehicle market, and in 2006 heads into another strong year with new basic vehicles that are Faster Than Fast™ and exciting playset innovations like the Terror-Dactyl™ Track Set with kid-powered super boosters and a giant pterodactyl that can capture wayward Hot Wheels® cars in its teeth.
The World’s Coolest Car Company continues to deliver miniature versions of vehicles with cool twists and features that kids love! Street Glo™ vehicles and playsets feature neon glowing chassis that light up once the motor is charged; and the Micro Madnetics™ vehicles roll incredibly straight, incredibly fast and can perform incredible stunts with their magnetic gyro wheels.
Now more than ever, Hot Wheels® delivers true experiences of the brand’s famed speed, action and attitude with an exciting line of outdoor-based toys and sporting goods. Kids can “catch insane air” with the Monster Jam® Stomp Jumper vehicle, soar to new heights with the kid-powered Double Shotz™ line, or cruise in style with the transformable Chopper 2 Scooter ride-on vehicle. The Hot Wheels® Radar Gun enables kids to measure the actual scale speed of their vehicles, and features point-and-read technology, edgy styling and super-cool graphics.
Remaining on the cutting edge of car culture, just as it did in 1968, the Hot Wheels® trend line of vehicles features the latest styles straight off the streets. Leading the way is Sik Ridz™, the only vehicle line for boys 7-10 that taps into urban culture with the coolest auto trends across different vehicle styles.
